Mayoral candidate Paula Havixbeck says she isn’t seeking to receive an endorsement from unions or special interest groups, unlike her opponent Judy Wasylycia-Leis.
The United Fire Fighters of Winnipeg publicly endorsed Wasylycia-Leis on Monday.
“They openly endorsed Judy when she was sitting as a provincial NDP cabinet minister,” Havixbeck said. “I prefer to stay away from aligning my interests with those of special interest groups, as many of them expect special treatment down the line.”
Havixbeck said she supports the UFFW, but prefers to work with groups in an open and transparent way.
